What's new in 12.2 for Rapid Home Provisioning and Maintenance?

Burt Clouse
Sr Principal Product Manager

Now available for your on-premises deployments, Oracle Grid Infrastructure 12.2 includes many enhancements to the Rapid Home Provisioning and Maintenance (RHP) functionality


Rapid Home Provisioning and Maintenance (RHP) has evolved significantly since its initial release in Grid Infrastructure 12.1, which focused on provisioning and patching Oracle Database homes.  With RHP 12.2 we now deliver a full range of provisioning and maintenance features:

  • Efficient Gold Image inventory and out-of-place distribution
  • Manage existing 11.2 and 12.x deployments as-is -- no agent / daemon / target config required
  • Provision new clusters with a single command
  • Database and Grid Infrastructure: provision, patch, scale, upgrade with a single command
  • Deploy and manage any software home
  • Custom workflow framework
  • Notification model
  • Auditing capabilities

Ready to learn more?  This Database Learning Stream video is a good place to start - a full overview of 12.2 functionality. 

Prefer the printed word?  The data sheet and white paper have been updated for 12.2, and the white paper now includes a step-by-step cookbook that takes you through the simple commands to create Gold Images, organize them in to series, and use them to create, patch and upgrade target deployments.

Skeptical?  Then we invite you to peruse the RHP demo playlist on the Oracle Learning Library YouTube channel.
